Private Maths and Physics Tutor in Exeter

I am passionate about teaching and helping each student maximize their potential by making Physics and Maths accessible to all. In addition to my teaching experience (see below), I have worked as a Research Physicist (20 publications in international scientific journals), University & College Lecturer, Industrial and Graphic Designer, Engineer, Artist and BMX rider. Consequently, I am enthusiastic and proactive in helping students see how Physics and Maths relate to everything from sport to art, from music to space travel etc. This makes lessons more engaging and helps fire up students' imagination and enthusiasm for the subjects.

Tutoring Experience

I have over 20 years experience teaching in private schools, state schools and universities. Fully converse with OCR, AQA and Edexcel/Pearson syllabuses for A-level, GCSE, KS3 for Physics and Maths. Invited to be an A-level Physics board examiner by OCR. Experienced in marking A-level / GCSE coursework, exam assessment and exam technique. Regularly provide "Maths for Physics" booster lessons at schools. Extensive experience in helping students attain the highest grades as quickly as possible in all age groups including KS3, GCSE, A-level, IB, BTEC, Degree, PhD and SEN (special educational needs). Recently, I have contributed to textbooks and made instructional videos for Maths KS3 and GCSE students.

Tutoring Approach

Students and parents consistently report that my approach to tutoring is fast, fun and effective. Lessons are tuned to the needs of the individual student and I am always careful to start each topic at a level where the student is comfortable, progressing gradually so that the student feels at ease and learns quickly. Questions, no matter how simple or advanced, are always welcome. Whenever possible, I relate the lesson to a real-world situation or application and help students see the connections between different subjects and topics.
